The Canadian 411 website, canada411.ca, offers a variety of ways to search for people online, including name search, phone number reverse look-up and social search options. Alternatively, you may dial 411 from any phone to access directory assistance for a fee, which varies by phone service provider.
Basic 411 online name searches enable searchers to enter full or partial last names, first name and last name, and first initial and last name. Reverse phone number searches return known matches, including names and addresses. Social search options on Canada's 411 website returns results from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
When you dial 411, the operator needs the individual's name and location to perform the search. The operator-assisted 411 service can provide Canadian and United States listings. Bell charges $3.50 per name, and Virgin Mobile charges $2.49 per call, as of 2015.
